Pick my chaos army idea, I do not have the time to do both:

1.Belakor-themed army with Belakor, chaos legionnaires as the main troops, centaurian marshall, chariots and maybe ogroids

2. Greed-themed slaanesh STD army with chaos dwarfs counting as chaos warriors as well as slaanesh knights inspired by that classic bit of adrian smith art (kitbash would be knights + myrmidesh painbringers) and chariots, ogroids

Okay so after skimming through Blackened Earth I can say without a doubt that Greywater Fastness is a shitheap that deserves to be destroyed. On its face you might think it's got some Princess Mononoke kind of deal going on where you've got ambitious Lady Eboshi figures who try to better the lot of their ragtag followers at the expense of nature. That's dead fucking wrong. The leadership is comprised mostly of petty merchants and flat-out Chaos cultists who are actively trying to make everyone miserable just for the sake of it. It's a shitty place full of shitty people who shit up everything they come into contact with.

The Tzeentch article on Warcom says that Tzeentch has a geomantic map of the Mortal Realms created by the Old Ones.

Isn't that lore rape considering that the Mortal Realms became a thing THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of years after the disappearance of the old Ones?
>>
>>86128492
Pointing out your stupidity is enough. It would be the same if you complained about this in relation to a different company/IP. GW only commisions those, GW isn't the artist.
Why is everything to do with GW rubbing you the wrong way?
Do you want to talk about it?
>>
AoS should've been a Kings of War ripoff (gameplay wise) rather than a 40k ripoff. Keep the fantasy that only a rank and file game can bring while also simplifying it down so retards can understand it.
>>
>>86128703
No.
>>
>>86128789
GW mostly want to sell models not rules and especially not good ones that would create a stable but static game.
If the goal is making and selling models then rank and flank is kind of limiting because all the ranks need to line up unless you make the bases huge which brings other problems and then it won't look uniform either which is defeating the purpose.
Maybe TOW will be just that but to be fair I would have prefered a warmaster scale at that point.

Youre not wrong but to be fair i always figured its because the big shouty fat guy at the front saw some knights do it once and thought it'd be neat and he'll fucking eat you if you say no. Tyrants don't exactly run a democracy plus they're all fat enough you kinda end up in ranks the second you reach the enemy by virtue of girth, you take up too much space to NOT accidentally end up in ranks.
>>
>>86129389
That’s my turbo tinfoil hat theory. IDK were supposed to be Teclis and Tyrions faction. The Eidolons are a spell caster and a melee monster, the melee one has its eyes covered by helm(implying blindness), the knee pads on Eidolon look like the symbol of Lothern, and most telling is the narration for the IDK reveal trailer. The verbiage makes it sound like Teclis was one of them. “I thought to start my race anew; forged in the image of ancient glories. And I failed. But in the blackness, WE found hope.”
There’s also my other tinfoil hat theory of the “Ymetrica variant” paint scheme being LRL’s original box art scheme but being switched at last second, maybe because it was too similar to IDK box art scheme. Evidence being the original artwork of Teclis having his deep blue inner cloak, the colors of the scheme itself looking like Teclis and Lothern in generals old world colors, and in the LRL reveal trailer it says “From the Realm of Hysh. A SILVER host.” Cream color is a long shot from silver if you ask me.

that would be impossible, there's no way GW would make models for both tyrion and teclis and then make them akward to field together because they're identical in everything except a helmet and some wands

they're elves, not orcs

>>86128852

not sure if you're still around, but heres my take

soulblight is a good, and surprisingly versitile army. it can play fast lightning assaults, slow attrition grinds, spellcaster cabals, giant creature monster mash, and everything inbetween. it has a TON of good options, and very few outright bad ones.

as far as heroes go, the mortarchs are all solid, with the mortarch of night being the standout for the sheer shenanigans he can pull off as well as his strong buffs and durability. radukar and the wolf mother are both amazing, doubly so in vyrkos. the two smaller named vampires, the rat guy and annika are actually both very good for their points, damn near impossible to kill. gorslav is a must if you are running zombie spam. generic vampire lords are useful but slow, vamp lords on zdragons are still the premier combat monster hero, with the new vamp-taurs coming in a close second. necromancers are decent but also have access to the lore of death which is extremely useful. legion of night can run a necromancer council with an artifact that is very strong.

for units. skeletons are no longer both hammer and anvil, they are now just anvil. they deal zero damage, but are somewhat durable and extremely hard to kill in the right situations but vulnerable to shooting, casting, and out of phase fighting due to how their reanimation works. wolves and bats are both stellar fast screening units, with bats leaning more into mobility while wolves provide better wounds and damage for the points and can be buffed significantly. zombies are your hammer. they are shockingly fast, deal a fuckload of damage, and are cheap as they come. running a big 60 man unit or 2 40 man units are both strong plays and they always do work. graveguard pack a lot of damage but are extremely slow so they can be hard to use. good for holding a point. black knights are awful, the one truly bad unit of the tome. blood knights on the other hand are incredible. fast, hard hitting, durable

>>
>>86130557
Zombies are ok, your description is a bit hyperbolic. 60 isn't exactly cheap now and they do middling damage and require a source of +1 attack to even do so. You hope they last two rounds and you get maybe 10 damage or so per activation from them. All the infantry spam is bad anyway now till BH is gone.
>>
>>86130557
pt 2

as for utility you have several useful options with two standouts.

corpse carts, specifically with the balefire brazier, pack a nasty debuff aura that requires nothing other than being near them. no casting rolls, no prayer rolls, just works. and they're cheap and reasonably tough.

then you have the mortis engine. this things mileage will vary, it does next to nothing against budget hordes but its quite impactful against elite min units. it pulses mortal wounds, and has a once per game big pulse that deals even more damage. its not cheap but not exactly expensive, you could easily find room for one in a list if you want a bit of an aoe threat.

then onto the monsters. the zombie dragon and terrorghiest are both okay, though they really shine in avengorii which makes them a fair bit harder to kill. at around 300 points each they arent cheap, but they are fast and fly, which are both things that this army tends to struggle with outside a few select units, mostly heroes and blood knights, so having that extra mobility can be helpful. the vampire lord on zombie dragon, costing an extra 130 points over a regular zombie dragon, adds a lot of punch and the potential for some strong artifacts and command traits, you will often see one leading the army and he pairs well with blood knights.

probably the biggest downside to the army is its lack of ranged options. basically zero ranged offense, and 95% of your wizards only have access to the lore of vampires which is a pure garbage lore. most vampire heroes will be casting the spell on their warscroll if they have one like belladoma but thats about it.
>>
>>86130634
its only not cheap compared to clanrats which are undercosted. 120 for 20 is about as cheap as any infantry comes, and their ability to pull off guaranteed 16 run and pile ins makes them fast and dependable, and almost all their damage comes in the source of mortal wounds which bypass save stacking nonsense entirely

It doesn't. It's the way GW has painted it. Again, if people actually BOUGHT models and painted them they'd know this. Same shit with SoB.

So I was reading the short story in WD 'White-Fur'. Turns out that all hair is referred to as 'fur' by Skaven, so it was actually a dwarf. But the weird thing is, the dwarf says 'Oh some ranger was left behind to await the return of the king to this hold but it didn't happen and he died and went into legend and I got attached to it' and another bit of the story said 'but there was no gods here, only the one standing before him'. So I was wondering if the 'White Fur' was Grombrindal. Is he considered a God since he was made by Grungni? Or is Grungni white bearded?

No. Dawnbringer Crusades is a narrative thing so you can make your own cities and shit in the realms if you want to, or use the established shit if you don't. It is literally just 'Humanity starts going 'fuck you, this is our land'' again and all the shit that goes with it.

Think of it this way. Dawnbringer Crusades are the action that leads to a City of Sigmar being founded. You're still playing Cities of Sigmar. Calling them 'Dawnbringer Crusades' would be really weird because it implies they don't stop. When the whole point of Dawnbringer Crusades is to find a place, settle, build a city and hope you survive.

I'm predicting dawnbringers to be "primarias cos". What I mean by that is we get new units that are essentially "upgrades" you could argue of existing units in the tome but we don't lose those current units. Do I expect a dawnbringer equivalent of each unit? No, but I think there will be few drastically unique-concept units. And then as Old World actually starts releasing kits, they'll slowly stop selling the current kits and stop directly promoting them as being the core of that army but leave a proxy equivalent unit for them that you can use the updated old world sculpts for. But at the end of the day we don't actually know shit

GW is really bad at doing 'named characters vs named characters' because you can't have one guy flat out lose. If you do, there is a caveat. Blackmane (Primaris) kills Ghaz? Nope, he cut his head off but it was just attached back because he is super Orky. Magnus faces Logan? Magnus kills some Grey Knights and is weakened and Logan is buffed by Russ and the Spirit of Fenris. Dante vs Swarmlord? Dante blows up his pistol to kill him and dies, but is rezzed by Sanguinius to carry on fighting. Then you have dumb things like Yndrasta hunting down Kragnos... which obviously can't and won't result in anything because she can't kill a God and since she is immortal Kragnos will beat her after she 'wounds' him. Kroak and Morathi needed to team up to beat Kragnos because Kragnos was immune to Kroak's magic (the most powerful slann in existence, only more powerful due to absorbing starlight... can't even tickle Kragnos... slann are just so pathetic in fluff it's depressing). Stormcast Eternals just get killed... I don't think any of the named guys have gotten perma killed (that have models I mean) they killed off Bladestorm didn't they? I can't remember. That's the advantage of 'can't die' things, you can have them lose to hype up a character that can't rez if they die.

Anyway that's my point. Versus fights are always dumb. In WHFB GW at least let shit actually die. VC and Orcs were 90% dead named characters... as in dead dead, not undead. There was a dead guy in Empire. I don't think any other faction had a 'dead in fluff but here are his rules' things in mainline (I think they had FW dead dead guys).

I mean it's the truth.

I'm a newbie, I got into AoS around 6 months ago and bought tons of gray plastic (at least 1500 points of IDK) but never started painting it even if I was actively playing.
I just couldn't start doing it. A mix of analysis paralysis because there are so many scheme options and fear of doing it bad. Not painting felt awful, the guiltiness and self-blame of not doing a task that I should be doing. And every time I played against a fully painted army it was like disrespecting my opponent who took the time to paint every single detail.

After these months, I finally put my shit together and convinced myself that it's okay to paint if they turn out awfully, and even if that happened I could simply buy more plastic, there is nothing stopping me from doing so. Managing to get some of my minis painted should be enough reward no matter how they look.
Since the last week, I started painting my first minis, I'm doing it little by little and making sure that I paint at least half an hour every day, even if it's just correcting some painting mistakes or base coating. It's starting to feel nice, all the shame and self-blaming that I collected over the months is slowly fading away.

It's still too soon to be proud of myself since I don't even have a unit fully painted but anything is better than not painting at all. Please /aosg/ wish me luck. Baby steps.

TLDR: Non-painting-fag becomes a Paint-a-little-fag

I was thinking:
Is there "necromancy" in Age of Sigmar?
You know, the forbidden art taken from Dhar, forcing the winds of magic in unnatural ways?
Or is it all "Amethyst Magic" now that Nagash and Shyish go hand in hand?

Are there humans doing Amethyst magic anymore? Are they seen as dangerous? It wasn't the case in the Old World, Shyish magic was perfectly legitimate, nothing like necromancy.

...But now they are the same?
...Or is there still a difference?
>>
>>86135023
There is a difference still it's just blurrier from what I can tell. Like you can be a death mage without being a necromancer
>>
>>86135071
But necromancy now should no longer be "unnatural" right? It has become part of the "normal" realm of Death/Shyish, it is no longer a "twisted evil version" of Death, it is just Death (I assume?)
It is endorsed by the literal legitimate natural deity of Death, it should be perfectly in line with the cosmos now (?)
>>
Am I retarded for starting a Legion of Azgorh army with normal dwarfs and then all the various chaos bits I have lying around?
>>
>>86135158
Yes, presumably, but also consider this:
The perfectly legitimate, natural deity of death, nagash... is an asshole.
>>
>>86135023
Amethyst magic is a thing and necromancy is still considered a perversion of it as explained in Cursed City, one of the heroes in that game is an Amethyst wizard hunting down his rogue apprentice turned necromancer. That being said Necromancers do seem tolerated in the Cities, but then there's a ton of shit that's tolerated in cities that wouldn't be back in Fantasy.

Kek, Nagash explicitly *isn't* the legitimate God of Death, he consumed most of those and has a serious case of Schizophrenia because of it. Honestly, none of Nagash's lore makes sense given that everyone, aside from possibly Gorkamorka, was well aware of how much of a cunt he is, letting him gobble the underworlds of their followers never made sense. Double dumbass points go to Sigmar for even freeing him in the first place given their particular history.

There's a reason Arkhan is literally Nagash's only friend in the entirety of his existence.

their consolation is the two nicest looking, and most cohesive underworlds teams. Cold comfort when the army looks dogshit but still something.

>>86136682
Arkhan's treatment in AoS/Fantasy reminds me of Starscream's treatment in the Bayformers movies. He's supposed to be the shitty sycophant traitor type, but he's too iconic to be not part of his overlord's retinue and his ambitions therefore align with his master's while he himself never gets any reasonable opportunity nor motive to usurp him, because Nagash has to remain as the supreme overlord of death for his model to maintain it's narrative relevance. So in practice he comes across like an overworked butler who just wants the best for his boss.

Idk, i'm 4-0-1, 3-2, 4-1 with Gutbusters. Heroes and Monsters are unbelievably good right now so underguts quad trophy canon is great. You just pick off like 500 points of shit every turn. Leadbelchers w/ Bounty Hunter are damage 3 in melee against GV and purple sun functionally gives them rend 2 Without needing to get in close. Ironguts absolutely fuck, it's not uncommon that they'll just vaporize whatever they charge at even unbuffed and Hungry speed 8 gets them there decently quick. Reinforcing to make your Rallies/All outs better is pretty reasonable too and if you're really going in you can just run a Krondspine as a fantastic screen for all your shooting. I find Gutbusters consistently outperform Beastclaw outside of the turn you pop rune token.

iirc there is a story of a tyrant getting a taste for sylvaneth flesh so they start fucking forests up to draw them out. The ogors then proceed to make fun of the tyrant for eating something that's basically vegetables. My personal favorite Ogor story is the one where a tyrant eats too many hallucinogenic mushrooms from the GSG and decides he's going to eat an entire airship. Which goes great right up until his stomach acid burns through a warhead in his stomach and blows him to little chunks.

I'd keep that hype in a bit of check, it looks like the majority of these tome spam books aren't doing more than a point of rend or save here and there. Unless your army was already half baked (NH lol), I wouldn't expect absolutely huge changes. The AoS design team is (smartly) steering away from power creep and the game is already very tight on numbers.

I kinda have doubts. They aren't sold for warcry in the warbands form either, nor are stores getting restocked. I feel like they planned to phase them out so newer warbands can take their place and incentivise people to buy the newer models. Saves printing out a dozen warbands when you can replace a mold with that of the new warbands.

>ERA OF THE BEAST
>The culmination of Alarielle the Everqueen's great spell of life and the subsequent rise of the Earthquake God, Kragnos, herald the dawn of the Era of the Beast, an age of untamed savagery and violence. Though this crude animalism is distasteful to Tzeentch, he is delighted by the outbreaks of bestial mutation that occur due to the waxing of amber magic; the numbers of his Tzaangors multiply tenfold, as more and more humans devolve into avian horrors. His followers look to hasted this process whenever possible by corrupting sites of arcane power with unbridled change-magic.

nta but fuck off already. I have 40 fully painted Saurus Warriors and I'd happily tip them into a trash can if GW updated the sculpt already.

He's kinda right about the saurus. They should look like less, forgive the word, 'epic' version of the Oldblood/Scar Vet on the Carnosaur. So smaller ridge etc. Total War Lizardmen are absolute garbage and should never be anywhere near the tabletop. I am actually sickened by how bad the Lizardmen were seeing as how the most popular army the devs actually collected was Lizardmen. I mean, they didn't even have SCALY SKIN attribute. They acted like retarded orcs. They walked like gorillas. They were fucking dumb, stupid and bad. Kroxigors were awful too.

I have around 120 Saurus Warriors, not all painted since I quit my WHFB mega project when WHFB died, so I don't care if they're not updated lmao.

Now that we've got about half the battletomes available to judge from, it seems they're pretty much just copypasting tomes that were considered decent in 2E and only putting effort into the garbo ones.

Which is fine up to a point but there's nothing about it that deserves praise, not when they're selling this shit for $50 a book and and a 55% chance at new cover art.

So Guild of Summoners can definitely summon an additional Lord of Change by T2 and has a good chance at putting an extra one down T1. But the second probably isn't going to hit the table until T3/T4. How good is that?
>>
>>86141842
I think the fact that you have this stereotype on tap in the first place is good evidence that the current sculpts are dealbreakers. I know I'm waiting on a bit of a line refresh to separate "seraphon" from "lizardman" before I throw any shekels at GW.

Auto-casting Burning Sigil turn 1 (regardless of who gets first turn) and it can't be dispelled turn 1 either, is going to be pretty insane vs. any 1/2 wound armies. This can easily create 3-4 spawn and completely fuck up your opponent's plans before they even do anything.

Not yet but in a few months there will be

That's why I say almost, with Chaos characters and Eltharion being the exceptions and even then it's a gamble since several of them went extinct. Even Sigvald was turned into a generic hero until he randomly got a new model.

>>86143493
I'm fine with Throgg staying dead, his old model was perfect and I feel like they'll make him look like a trogboss which I also love the look of but I don't think it suits him

Literally everything has been leaked for months. If you mean last 'proper announcement' (aka WarCom with a non-potato image) then no, Chosen were the last.

Throgg's model was perfect and should have been named Troggoth King and Troll Hag should have been named Troggoth Queen and you should have gotten a bonus if both were together within an aura range.

FUCKING MISSED CHANCE.
>>
>>86143620
Except Throgg was a WoC character and the troll hag an orcs and goblins model wiht a very different aesthetic. It wouldn't have made any sense. Besides, the reason they squatted Throgg in the first place despite being mentioned in the first AoS book is because they broke the mold and it took them 3 editions to do something with WoC.

I like them because they remind me of oldhammer chaos warriors, back when they came with heavy armor by default that you could upgrade to chaos armor.
>>
>>86144402
Old aesthetic is good, but models are not very good. But I agree, dig both style but prefer the old marauders as the baseline.
>>
>>86144357
Yes.
They actually hit a little harder than chaos warriors as nearly half the unit has 2 damage halberds and having a 50% chance to turn off commands for someone you're within 6" of (so not even necessarily in combat) is pretty fucking strong for an otherwise speed bump battleline unit.

They aren't anywhere as fast as marauders so obviously their overall usefulness is lower, but I don't think they're shit by any means.

Chaos warriors better be more than glorified brick walls this time. There was a time where they used to be feared in combat.

They should do that even with normal sized games. We have the same model counts as fantasy, there's no point in pretending this is a skirmish game.

Darkoath are literally marauders, just not with 20 year old models. Though half the heads and of the savagers look like shit. They have wierd proportions in a different way than regular marauders do.
